There are many ways to see Kenya on safari, but how about from 14,000feet above the ground, falling earthwards at 120 miles per hour?
For adrenaline junkies, the Kenyan coast has become the latest hot spot for aerial adventure- where the equatorial atmosphere at sea level can give skydivers more than a minute of full freefall over the beautiful blue Indian Ocean, before touching down on pure white sands on one of the world’s best beaches.
Kenya Skydive BoogieThis is the draw for international skydivers who gather at Diani Beach on Kenya’s South Coast each year for the Kenya Skydive Boogie.
This event is popular both with experienced skydivers and those interested in experiencing the thrill of free fall for the first time.
What began as a social event organized each year among Kenyan Sky Divers has become a major event on Kenya's skydiving calendar.
The term Boogieis generic term for a gathering of skydivers from all over the globe,and each year brings a bevy of boogies as enthusiasts meet up in the world’s best skydive destinations.
To the uninitiated, one sky dive location may not be that different to any other, but wind and weather conditions, altitude and the facilities and attractions on the ground all combine to make each boogie unique.
The Kenyan boogie is becoming increasingly popular- as it is one of the only such events where divers are based at a single beach resort and can depart from a nearby airstrip and dive from an aircraft directly over their base.
